Govt awaits South Africa authorities response on Malawi ex-miners dues

Minister of Labour Ken Kandodo says the government is this week expecting a response from authorities South Africa detailing compensation payment modalities for former Malawian miners.

Minsiter of Labour Ken Kandodo: A list of ex-miners eligible for compensation was sent for vetting in South Africa

Thousands of Malawians worked in South African mines in 1960s, 70s and 80s during apartheid when the then white minority government outsourced labour in mines because black South Africans refused to work to force the government end apartheid.

About 48,000 Malawian ex-miners have been looking forward to the day when they’d get their compensations since their return from South Africa between 1988 and 1989.

According to Kandodo, a list of ex-miners eligible for compensation was sent for vetting in South Africa to be followed by appropriate pay-outs.

Kandodo said that the matter has dragged a lot due to failure by former regimes to pursue it thoroughly.

It was Hastings Kamuzu Banda dining with the apartheid masters and in return receiving sponsorship for the building of his luxurious palace whilst the majority of Malawians languished in poverty, that’s why the regional trio (Samora Machel, Robert Mugabe, and Kenneth Kaunda) all together visited him at his Sanjika palace where the leader Machel showered rant at him describing him as ‘a fascist, a black Nazi, with all the characteristics of the European fascist…He kills his collaborators with such ease’. Immediately after, the sell out Kamuzu went and told the apartheid masters what transpired on the meeting, and within a… Read more »
